    How do you turn off FRBR in Primo?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 3

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Want to stop using dedup in Primo in the future. Dedup/FRBR have been used in the past and those values need to be removed from the existing records in Primo.

    Procedure:
    *The "type 99" procedure to fix this situation is described in chapters 3 and 4 of the Primo Technical Guide.

    *If the records are already deduped or frbred, type 99 will not break the existing dedup or frbr links/keys, Method 1 will only prevent dedup/frbr from processing.

    Method #1
    Step1: Break the dedup & frbr
    1. Change Norm Rules for dedup section
    a. Leave t as-is
    b. Set C1 to recordid (from LCCN)
    2. Change Norm Rules for frbr section
    a. Leave t as-is
    b. Set K1 to recordid (from author)
    3. Save and Deploy Norm Rule changes
    4. Run the xxxx_NO_HARVEST pipe all the way to FRBR to renormalize the records where xxx is the institution desired
    5. Index/Hotswap (optional)

    Step 2: Enable type 99 to disable dedup/frbr in the future
    1. Change Norm Rules for dedup section
    a. Set t to 99.
    2. Change Norm Rules for frbr section
    a. Set t to 99.
    3. Save and Deploy Norm Rule changes
    4. Run the xxxx_NO_HARVEST pipe all the way to FRBR to renormalize the records where xxx is the institution desired
    5. Index/Hotswap

    *End of Method 1

    Method 2
    *If the records are already deduped or frbred, Method #2 is an alternative approach.
    *It removes all dedup and FRBR keys from the dataset.
    *It is, long term, the quicker and cleaner approach but requires downtime for the front end.

    Method #2 Steps
    Step 1: Enable type 99 to disable dedup/frbr in the future:
    1. Change Norm Rules for dedup section
    a. Set t to 99
    2. Change Norm Rules for frbr section
    Set t to 99
    3. Save and Deploy changes

    Step 2: Change all pipes to run all the way to FRBR
    Step 3: Run 'delete DS' for your institution and re-harvest of all ILS data
    Step 4: Index (This will remove public access to your Primo catalog. It is necessary in order to delete the dedup and FRBR keys prior to the reload.)
    Step 5: Run the Regular pipe for you institution ensuring the data path is correct for a full data extract.
    Step 6: Index/Hotswap
    *End of Method 2

    Additional Information

    Recommendation: Open a case with support to discuss options prior to executing either method of dedup to turn off dedup.
